This began an a New Year’s resolution two years ago. I vowed I would work on my writing. I joined the local writers’ guild, took some classes and began blogging on a daily basis. After a few months, I lost some steam and began blogging and writing only occasionally. I realized that by blogging daily I wasn’t actually taking the time to hone my craft. I would just publish raw rants. Ultimately I would like to be a better writer and would like to be published. Recently I was not awarded the emerging artist’s fellowship in my state. I’m going to keep writing. It serves as therapy for me and I’d be a liar to say I don’t like the idea of connecting with other people. I would love to be a monstrous talent like Steinbeck or Joyce Carol Oates but my style is probably more David Sedaris – humor in bed with serious topics.
